The philodendron glorious is a hybrid of...yup you guessed it philodendron gloriosum. Its other parent is the philodendron melanochrysum.  Each glorious plant may look or act a little bit different depending on the parentage of the original hybrid.  Meaning your leaves may take on more of a melanochrysum look with elongated leaves or more heart shaped from the gloriosum.  This plant is a guaranteed show stopper and unlike the terrestrial gloriosum, this plant is a climber and well suited for a moss pole.

 

Care

Light: Philodendrons do well in a range of light conditions. They prefer moderate to bright indirect light, but can tolerate shadier lighting conditions as well. Avoid direct sunlight, prone to sunburn.

Water: Water well and let soil dry out almost completely.  Your plant will tell you when it is thirsty with dull or droopy leaves, yellowing leaves, or the soil starts to detach from the edge of the pot.

Temperature/Humidity Average to warm household temperatures from 18-28°C and short periods down to 12°C at an absolute push. Avoid cold draughts. Comfortable in average household humidity but will thrive in higher humidity.

Soil: We suggest planting in a chunky well draining aroid mix consisting of our orchid mix, perlite, and pumice.  You can also add in some worm castings and charcoal. 

Care Tips: Most philodendrons are epiphytes and will thank you with big leaves if you provide them a moss pole to climb.  Wipe leaves with a damp cloth to remove accumulated dust.  Feed with Kelpy Plant Food or Plant Vitamins Thrive.

This specimen ranges from 4-6 leaves.
